    Wow!! That is a damning article against the whole MSU institution. I can’t believe why so many go to such great lengths to protect that program after reading articles like that. Just WOW!!

    Hate to say it but they'll sweep it all under the rug and move on (although these days it must seem like a Himalayan climb just to get over the lumps and bumps that are under that rug...).

    They're nearly tied with Ped $tate in regards to self denial and "the Program above all"...

    Pathetic folks up there...

    The article sure doesn't paint a pretty picture and it is hard to see how so many deny what was going on.

    Meanwhile.....Dantonio is getting measured this week for a bronze statue up there.

    Nice guys finish last.
    He’ll always be there as long as he wins. The coaches who play around in the margin tend to still hang around.

    The media is laughable on these things. If you win, nobody really writes much about this. It’s all kept in the background. He’s a great coach and is wearing his pink ribbon to support rape victims month.

    That is as long as you are winning. Once you have some losses, the press smells blood and this stuff comes front and center. You win, you are good to go.

    Dantonio and Izzo are both untouchable for some reason.
    They are both hypocrites who cares about nothing but winning,at all costs.

    I don't think this is true in this case. The Detroit Free Press has been all over this since it broke - and pissed off a lot of MSU supporters in the process who think this is all "fake news". Without the DFP this would have been buried never to see the light of day, and Blackwell would have been scapegoated as responsible for the whole mess. As it stands, the story cost both the AD and the President of the University their jobs.

    The problem is, the big money donors like the way Dantonio and Izzo win. They're perfectly willing to let the administration shoulder the blame entirely to protect the guys who bring home the titles. Nothing short of a confession from those two (which ain't gonna happen) would be enough to cause the faithful to turn on them.

    Hoops Final Fours, wins over UM, ND and occasionally OSU in football carry a lot of weight up there, integrity be damned.

    Ok, cue Spartan JD.

    Seems as though the negatives far outweigh the positives of having MSU as a B1G institution. How many more stories do we need to read about criminal athletes in East Lansing?

    You're right - they belong in the SEC. They'd fit right in.

    As long as the coaches, the Teflon Dons, continue to put on a good face and hold their “we love women and support them” press conferences, they are golden.

    This stuff just goes away.

    I’d call for less campus civil rights office and more police

    Just to let the victims know how M$U really feels about them... : they're about to pay Dantonio a $4.3 million "retention bonus" (which either kicks in today or tomorrow)... //$cum//

    By and large the media, in sports or in politics, are like jackals who will only come out to feed on a carcass when all danger has passed.

    Delany & the BTN is really disgusting in this regard.......

    And I'm not talking about supporting Izzo, or Dantonio or Paterno.....if you want to either support them or crucify them, go ahead, I don't care.

    But what they did in the Paterno case was effectively support him (by hushing up), until it became clear that he was a dead man walking, and then turn on him with PC viciousness. If/when the weight of public opinion became unbearable, they would stop being best buds with Izzo & Dantonio and start being critical & self-righteous.

    Delaney cannot leave soon enough. That guy is corrupt.

    Oh, by the way, the guy gets a $20 million retirement package.

    Hopefully he's just a rubber stamp to add some legitimacy to the inevitable stupid choice.

    It it's Dolson, I've given my last dollar to the VC, except for the minimum.

    Delaney was done January 1. Kevin Warren is the Big Ten Commissioner.

    Well.....he can’t leave sooner than enough.. The fact that guy is part of our search committee is beyond absurd.

    I bet that bald bastard is on a yacht somewhere trying to figure up a bunch of names that could set us back 100 years. He is corrupt and on top of that he defended his alma mater, UNC, when they had their academic scandal.

    Delaney also was pushing for a proposal to have all freshmen ineligible to play sports until their sophomore year in college. He called it a “year of readiness.”

    Delaney’s mentor was, you guessed it, Dean Smith the mastermind of academic corruption.

    M$U has historically been one of the dirtiest, cheateness, do anything off field and basically get away with it, outfit in the country for decades..., from Steroids, to HGH, to rape..., everything is okay if you're a Michigan $tate athlete...

    The Spartans have always found a way to do whatever it takes to protect their players and insulate their HC's from what's actually going on... (no matter how wrong and low it might be)...

    I hope they never win another game but given the fact that they routinely buy at least two refs (at least when they play us) they're always going to be tough to beat...
